Mimi: Ten

It’s taken me six months to get around to writing this birthday update for Mimi.  Six months!  Truthfully, it’s taken me that long because I’ve been in quite a tricky headspace with regards to our gorgeous middle daughter and I’ve struggled to put into words what I’ve been wanting to say.  I wrote this post…

Lola: Eight

Last week, my littlest girl turned eight years old.  EIGHT!  I simply can’t wrap my head around it – I still think of her as the baby even though she’s in Year 3 at school now. She was so excited in the lead up to her special day: asking me every day how many sleeps…

Ella: Eleven

Two weeks ago Ella celebrated her eleventh birthday.  Eleven!  I almost can’t believe it.  I thought her turning ten last year felt like she was all grown up.  It’s got nothing on eleven though.  Eleven feels…different.  She’s on the cusp of so many changes and it’s going to be a learning curve for both of…

Father’s Day 2017

Today is Father’s Day.  I wrote this post last year all about the wonderful Dad’s that my family and I are lucky enough to have in our lives and to be honest, there’s not really much more I can add to it – everything I wrote before still holds true. I’m still finding it hard not having my…

Three Years Married

A couple of days ago the husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary.  Well, I say ‘celebrated’.  Truth be told it was kind of a weird day.  But that’s for a future blog post, coming soon… 😉 I can’t quite believe that we’ve been married for three years already – it’s crazy how fast…

Mimi: Nine

A couple of weeks ago Mimi, our middle daughter, turned nine. I think I’m still in a little bit of denial.  I can’t believe that nine whole years have passed since I welcomed her into the world, ten days after her due date, her crazy head of pitch black hair and her powerful lungs surprising us all. She still surprises us on…

Me: Thirty-Four

A couple of weeks ago I turned thirty-four.  Thirty-four!  The words sound alien because in my head I feel about sixteen.  And yet here I am, more than double the age I feel, somewhat bemused as to where the time has gone and how I’ve ended up here. All in all it was a pretty…

Mother’s Day 2017

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day and I was lucky enough to be thoroughly spoilt with homemade cards from the girls, a card they picked out at the shop with their Daddy, a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and Ed Sheeran’s new CD (which has been on non-stop in my car ever since!). They wrote such lovely words inside the…

A Whole Year of Blogging!

Last week, on 22nd March 2017, my blog turned one year old! I can’t believe I launched Picture Taker Memory Maker a whole year ago – the time seems to have flown by so quickly and simultaneously it feels like it’s been a part of my life forever.  I honestly can’t imagine venturing out without…
